** And let's not forget ''Exotic'' monsters! Exotic monsters are essentially this game's version of Shinies- they literally are palette swaps, they're significantly harder to find (and harder to befriend, too), and using Monster Orbs, while increasing their loyalty, doesn't change their palette. They also get a significantly cooler encounter theme.

As [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin you might've gleaned from the title]], the NintendoDS game ''Monster Racers'' is exactly that. A monster-raising game where, instead of fighting each other, monsters engage in friendly races with one another. The game combines the monster-catching and stat-building of the {{Mons}} genre with two-dimensional, {{Platformer}}-style races. Not only does it buck the turn-based RPG trend, it also does away with convention by being set in the real world (well, [[LikeRealityUnlessNoted "real"]]). The presence of strange monsters is explained ([[HandWave sort of]]) by the fact that, a few years ago, a random, star-shaped island appeared in the Pacific Ocean, and shortly after it appeared, monsters that love racing each other started appearing on all the continents.

Anyone who's familiar with more than one MonsSeries has probably noticed at least one primary thing about them: Overwhelmingly, they tend to be combat-oriented. Sure, there's the occasional PetInterface among them, but even then, outside of the friendly virtual-pet interface, monsters like to fight each other. Someone at {{Koei}} must have looked at this, and thought, "Well, why do monsters have to do bodily harm to each other to be fun? How about monsters who engage in some ''healthy'' competition, like, say... racing?"
